TE 19th MAY 2020

 

Many thanks to several collectors who have pointed out my latest mistake.

I apologize once again that I’ve made a mistake regarding some of the new releases.

The SMASS-02A and SMASS-02B pictures were not correct.

The correct pictures are now attached.

Over a year ago I asked collectors which new regiments they would like to see as re-paints for the Saratoga series.

The most popular choice was the 2nd New Hampshire Regiment.

But I also agreed to produce a couple of  other regiments.

One of which was The 9th Massachusetts Regiment.

It was pictures of figures from this regiment which were sent mistakenly sent out as the SMASS-02.

To avoid further confusion the next new repaint of the American Revolution continental regiment will be a limited run of the 9th Massachusetts, with their brown coats and red facings.

 

 

THE 9th MASSACHUSETTS REGIMENT

 

The 9th Massachusetts Regiment of the Continental Line was created on November 1, 1776. The unit served until January 1, 1783 when, in compliance with the general order of December 24, 1782, the unit was disbanded.

The regiment had two, successive commanders: Colonel James Wesson, from November 1, 1776 to January 1, 1781; and Colonel Henry Jackson, from the latter date to January 1, 1783. The regiment was a part of Learned’s Brigade, which consisted of the 2nd Mass, 8th Mass, the 9th and, some say, the 1st Canadian Regiment. When in battle formation, the regiment was always positioned in the second line of the left wing, between the 3rd Mass and the 6th Mass. Overall command was by Major General Stirling.

The regiment served, as did all Massachusetts units, in what was known as the Northern Department during the war. It participated at Fort Stanwix, Saratoga and Valley Forge. At Valley Forge (1777–1778), under the command of Col. Wesson and assisted by Lt. Col. James Mellen, it was incorporated by Lt. Col. James Mellen into Major General DeKalb’s division

The 9th Massachusetts Regiment will be available later this year, and the figures will be suitable for the Battle of Saratoga Campaign.

 

 

Many thanks and I apologize once again for any confusion and inconvenience.
